public interface IColorDistance

A mathematical norm and distance in different color spaces.
So it is a distance that conforms with the vector multiplication.
This does not just apply to the color itself but also to the standard deviation.
How do I present the combination in a simple way?
For gray I could make a vector of 2 integers.
For color I could make a vector of 4 or 6 integers.
Maybe I can use a 1 norm that is divided by the number of dimensions.
I am not sure that the variations in the std is as big and as important as the color variations.
Maybe all I need to do is giving some weights as input.
Maybe I could even have one norm that worked with different dimensions, with different weights.
